Design and Fabrication Of Hammer Mill Mechanical Project
Hammer Mill Project:
The objective of this project is to carry out a design fabrication and testing of a hammer mill, which will be used for grinding agricultural produce and mineral resources . The profile of the throat of the machine is redesigned to give better performance that was hot nit achieve when the machine was carrying the straight profile. Further more, the hammer was redesign to twisted type as against the straight hammer it was carrying formality. To achieve a better result, the sieve changing profile is redesigned to sliding type. This again allow for optimum productivity because the time consumed for changing the sieve is reduced to minimum.
The study of project deals with the hammer mills employing a high speed rotating disc, to which an ‘n’ number of hammer bars are fixed and swung outwards by centrifugal forces.Material is fed in, either at the top or at the Centre, and it is thrown out centrifugally and crushed between the hammer bars or against breaker plates fixed around the periphery of the cylindrical casing.
For high production of crushed coal it is better to use the hammer mills having higher contact surface of hammer. Hence, it is easy to produce the high rate of crushing coal with in less time.The purpose of the crushing is to produce the coal having size of less than 3mm (More than 3mm) and the moisture content is 10-12 percent .The type of hammer mill used is a Reversible swing hammer with open Bottom.The project involves the changing of hammer head, which gives the better crushing of coal. Therefore by changing the design of the Hammer head ,the following result is obtained
The hammer mill is an impact mill employing a high speed rotating disc, to which are fixed a number of hammer bars which are swung outwards by centrifugal force. Material is fed in, either at the top or at the Centre, and it is thrown out centrifugally and crushed by being beaten between the hammer bars, or against breaker plates fixed around the periphery of the cylindrical casing.
The hammer mill crushes by the collisions between high-speed hammer and material, and the hammer crusher features in its simple structure, high reduction ration, high efficiency, etc. The PC hammer crush (hammer mill) was developed for both dry and wet crushing of brittle,medium-hard materials for the mining, cement, coal, metallurgic, construction material, road building, and petroleum and chemical industries.
